I was going for this basic theme (the shoe on the far left). 

 

 

The reason I chose JR was partly Allison's suggestion and partly the information that I gathered from the AE and Alden threads. Here's for instance, is the discussion of the JR vs. butyl:

I have no doubt that butyl will be better in the inclement weather, but the chances of me wearing them out when it rains are next to none. 

I think we pretty much ended up with the same design, with except for the sole (JR vs. butyl) eyelets (exposed antique vs. no eyelets), and possibly the lining.

Another trick is after you wear a shoe and are about to place shoe trees back into the shoes to put a few pairs of socks over the shoe tree. I have a friend who had good success stretching a pair via this method

Looking for thoughts, impressions, and experience with the Norwich (single monk), especially brown shell.

I just bought a pair in brown cordovan a month ago. They are fantastic. Great fit and style. The nearly whole cut design of the Norwich really shows off the cordovan.

Cappuccino cordovan MacNeil
Double butyl sole
Split reverse welt
Light brown transparent for sole edge dressing (think about what the Neumok welt/sole looks like).

So, basically, take a cappuccino MacNeil and put it on the sole/welt of a Neumok.  I'm aiming for a more casual shoe, hence the lighter sole/welt. 

Sounds gorgeous. My order is not far off from that.

Cappuccino Leeds, split reverse, chili edge trim and double butyl. I'm hoping it doesn't take the 6-8 week estimate. My order went in the beginning of Sept.

Patrick, would you mind posting pictures of your Leeds once you get them? I am thinking of the Cappuccino Leeds as well, but will be curious to see yours first. Sadly, AE might be out of cappuccino shell by then...

Pics? I see you had a heel tap problem...fixed? Are your initial concerns of the elastic at the strap resolved?

Does anyone have an opinion on how the Mora 2.0 fits compared to something on the 5 last? I have a pair of 8D Fifth Aves that are very snug width and volume wise - not enough to make me not wear them, but enough to ensure I'd want something a little bigger for my next pair!

Based off of my last few MTO's I would not be surprised if it is close to 10-12 weeks...
